Blackwell Grange Golf Club

The golf course and its facilities are well established in the golfing world, a view that is firmly endorsed by the PGA, who regularly use the facilities for competitions.

The superb 18 hole parkland golf course extends over 145 acres and offers one of the best 15 bay floodlit driving ranges, offering distance markers, raised target greens and chipping nets. Blackwell Grange Golf Club also boasts a superb short game practice area, putting green, a professional shop and excellent catering facilities in the clubhouse.

The course offers a challenging and varied landscape with the river Skerne looping through the course and encouraging extra skill at the second, third and fourth holes. The second is a difficult 449 yard, par 4 downhill, with a green just nestling in the rivers loop. The third is a short uphill dog leg, par 4, with the river running all the way along its length. At the fourth, a short, but tricky 130 yard hole, tests the nerves, as the tee shot must carry the bend of the river.

The twelfth hole requires a good drive through a narrow and well bunkered part of the course, combines the well matured landscape with some tricky bunkers, whilst the finish is then quite daunting with four of the final five holes over 400 yards, including the par 5 16th hole.

Richmond’s 18 holes comprise eight of the original nine holes and the ten which were added in 1972 by celebrated course designer, Fred Pennink, who expertly utilised every square foot of space then available.

Extra length has been found down the years and the course now measures almost 700 yards longer than it did 40 years ago. Even now, at 6083 yards, it is not long, but the real test at Richmond has always been accuracy rather than length.

And then, of course, there are the greens! If you want to test your putting skills, you’ve come to the right place. Undulating and slick, the greens here can take some reading, but they are true and fair and a good putter will be rewarded.

Being quite exposed, the wind can get up something fierce at times, too. But whatever the weather, a CSS of 70 against a par of 71 properly reflects that Richmond can in no circumstances be described as a pushover.

There are four par 5s and five par 3s, the signature hole being the short (162yds men, 119yds ladies) 18th, where the tee shot is hit over a wood to a green in front of the clubhouse, a picturesque setting to rival any in Yorkshire.
